The sort of location I would love to cherish as a secret santuary, a place to escape the frenetic pace of life these day. Utterly beautiful interplay of light, shadow and colour in a frame that is beautifully observed and captured.

Gorgeous view from the inside. The textures and the colors of this place are truly amazing. Through its perspective this shot has an interesting ominous quality. Like there's something lurking in the darkness. Of course, there's always something lurking in the darkness.

Nitin from Shanghai, China

Ahh such a powerful picture - the path ahead and the feeling of being lost. Yet the light gives you hope and the beauty of the nature gives you a sort of comfort and peace. The earthy red orange colors of the stone walls leaning over you create an image of anxiety and yet the wonderful creation of god. Brilliant picture. I tried so hard to describe what I felt when looking at this picture, and failed. Cheers Pavan Great stuff!

25 Nov 2010 10:56am

@Nitin: Many thanks Nitin! Your words enrich the image by adding a dimension that I probably did not perceive! I do look forward to your wonderful visits!

In the arms of a giant.. that rock protrusion just beyond looks like a great arm to me and perhaps then we are nestled in the giants lap. A giant as old as time, slowly changing but constant, watching over all things.
